Sweetser Law Office is here for burn injury victims and survivors. We are dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by a burn injury. We will do everything possible to seek justice from those responsible for your burns.

You are not alone. You can get back to living. We can help connect you with caring people that have experienced this journey and resources to make recovery easier. Burn injuries affect the individual survivor as well as the people who are part of their lives. Physical healing is just one part of burn care. Lifelong recovery is about emotional healing. Victims often continue to encounter physical and psychological pain and disability, disfigurement, isolation and social rejection. Be sure to reach out to a Spokane personal injury attorney to learn more about your legal options.

Reliable, Compassionate Legal Representation for Burn Injury Victims

There are 500,000 burn injuries that require medical attention in the U.S. every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Up to 50,000 burn patients require hospitalization, and nearly half must be admitted to a specialized Burn Unit or Intensive Care Unit (ICU), according to the National Institutes of Health. It doesn’t have to be this way. Although burn injuries are rather common, they are more preventable than you may realize.

Burn injury statistics show that at least fifty percent of all burn injuries are preventable. An ounce of prevention can protect our families and our children (children are the primary victims) from burn injuries caused by scalding, heat, harsh chemicals, radiation, electricity, friction or during a car accident. Prompt investigation and adequate funding are essential. It is critically important to preserve the product which might have caused your burn injury, after the accident. Take photographs of the burn injury near in time to the injury when possible.

Our firm will use our an extensive network of experts ranging from chemical engineers, plastic surgeons, physical capacity evaluators, psychologists, and product designers, to hold those responsible accountable.

Burn Injury Cases Are Complicated

Burn injury cases are complex because burns are complicated injuries. Burns can affect not only the skin, but the blood vessels, muscles, nerves, and bone. Once the skin has been melted through, a person’s nerves are then traumatized which can cause severe permanent damage to the nervous damage and body tissues.

Burn injury survivors can be disabled for life, or can be blinded for life, because of the accident. Contact us today.
